GLMX #154: Meet the Attorney Who Has Never Lost a Case

Many people are fascinated by dramatic legal proceedings. Over the past few weeks, many in America have stayed informed about the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin murder trial all the way to its conclusion on yesterday. No matter the outcome of any case, it is undeniable that a good lawyer is perhaps the most valuable asset in a courtroom. Someone once said, “he who is his own lawyer has a fool for a client.”

You may have never needed the services of a lawyer in this life. But one day, when you stand before God, you will. And, the best lawyer you will find is Jesus Christ, the Son of God. The Bible says in First John 2:1, “My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous…”

This verse tells us the reason why we need a lawyer (or advocate) to stand before God the Father for us. It is because we are sinners, and we often do bad things. And, because God is holy and cannot tolerate sin in his presence, we cannot stand before God on our own. So, we must have someone to stand before God for us, just as a defendant has a lawyer to stand before a judge in his place. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is the only person who can stand before God in our place because he is righteous — when he was on this earth, he lived a perfect life and never sinned.
